A remake would be very slightly more welcome than nothing, but very slightly so. Banjo-Kazooie is basically perfect as it is, a visual overhaul will not change that. In contrast to Crash / Spyro it would also just be two games that could be remade.A remake like Crash and Spyro is always welcome. And then a new Banjo and Jet Force Gemini.
There's debates on if it's a Flood tentacle or just a cracked screen effect. Personally I lean towards the latter although I'd very much like to see the Flood show up again.So i was watching Halo Infinite Banished teaser and i noticed something the screen is no broken or cracked the thing actually moves so this is Flood Right ?
We know firsthand the challenges that working from home presents. Specifically, many developers are unable to access their Xbox development kits. By not having access to their usual tools, game developers, artists, and designers may not be able to maintain the rapid iteration cycles needed to turn out new content for gamers. Many of the traditional Xbox remote access tools are designed to be used within an office environment; bringing developer kits home is often not an option and activities like playtesting and gameplay tuning require high frame rates and minimal latency.
We've set out to solve these remote access challenges by re-allocating our Project xCloud resources; going beyond mobile and creating a PC app experience for developers that runs a low-latency 60fps gaming experience that allows for continued game development. By giving developers access to our PC Content Test App (PC CTA) they can remotely connect to their Xbox Development Kits from their PC, allowing them to test, play and iterate as if they were in the office. It also prevents them from having to download daily builds to local hardware in the home, which can often take hours.
To date, developers across many of the biggest gaming studios have used the PC CTA to significantly improve their remote-working environment. We have received great feedback on the overall quality from those within Xbox Game Studios as well as from several of our third-party partners, including:
Many of our partners were early adopters of this solution and shared this with the team:
- Infinity Ward
- Ninja Theory
- Playground Games
- Turn 10 Studios
- Undead Labs
"xCloud will give the opportunity to dev teams and also internal and external QA teams to put their hands on our latest game builds from everywhere minutes after their release. By allowing the teams to connect remotely to their devkits and take advantage of the high bandwidth LAN network from our various office locations, xCloud will also add another layer of security as the content created will stay on our corporate network." - Guillaume Le-Malet, Infrastructure Director – Eidos-Montréal"Our transition to work from home introduced some significant hurdles into our QA and development process. We went overnight from being able to test 2-3 builds daily to being limited to one build for the whole team, downloaded overnight. This was especially painful if that build failed in any way and could wipe out whole days. Using the PC Content Test app enables us to bring back our old workflows wholesale. Installs to kits on-site are now minutes rather than the hours it takes to download remotely, and we have the flexibility to react when something goes wrong." - Sean Davies, Technical Director – RareMicrosoft's key principle is enabling people to achieve more, and our goal in Xbox has always been to bring gaming to more people. Whether it's by offering up the latest games on a diverse set of platforms or enabling developers to work more effectively at home, we are always looking at ways to help our partners achieve more. We recently announced a new initiative from Azure to create a fast and secure build transfer solution for game developer working remotely, and now we're offering even more ways to work remotely by using Project xCloud technology.
For Xbox developers interested in utilizing the PC CTA, start by contacting your Microsoft Program Representative who can grant you access. Once you have installed the application you can use the Direct Connect functionality to remotely access your Xbox Development Kit. From here you can use all the developer tools needed to develop your game such as performance simulations, network testing, system resource monitoring and general trouble shooting
State of Decay MMO?
#believe (shamelessly advising fan theory)
He has worked on WoW,Guild Wars,Warcraft III,Starcraft and Diablo. With Microsoft's funding he can make a proper MMO that everyone wants.www.neogaf.com
State of Decay MMO?
State of Decay 3 is a thing. But I think they are also making a traditional MMO. Klobrille had also previously said that they have two projects.I do not want a SoD MMO. There's too many MMOish/GAAS games as is. I find that the overwhelming majority of time that single player experiences get ruined by turning into a MMO/GAAS
I'd prefer they stick to what made the first game so fun and addictive and build on that with a better story, building mechanics, while having co op or a multiplayer aspect on the side.
The problem with the recently acquired (Inxile and Compulsion) or created (The initative my biggest expectation) studios is that we will not have news till next year or more.
The proof with this tweet. When you are still hiring you are not well advanced in development. Unless Microsoft force them to rush games to put them on gamepass.
So for 23rd july the list will be drastically reduce for numbers of games to be shown.
No Intiative game
Inxile from what we saw with the tweet are not ready.
Hellblade 2 maybe will be advanced but if they choose to wait for UE5 don't know if they will show it.
AT&T will release their quarterly earnings on July 23, 7 AM ET
But they timed their event right after AT&T earnings call. There was no reason to wait till July 23.I think it won't happen that soon, some people believe that if it happens, it gonna take a few months.
Unless there was a deal ocurring even before the WB sale announcement.

Rumor that it was a July 20th event, sometimes coincidences can happen.
Perhaps Microsoft may also do their earnings calls on the same day?
Microsoft has not formally confirmed its next earnings publication date, but the company's estimated earnings date is Thursday, July 16th, 2020 based off prior year's report dates.
this guy is trustworthy, he leaks stuff not only for Xbox but for microsoft as a whole. I think he is not actually an insider, just has a way to find out about this stuff.Who's this guy?
I really can't keep up with the amount of "insiders" popping up all over.
